When we were teenagers, my brothers and sisters and I played a game called Starlight; we’d made it up and it evolved over time. There was a deck of 64 cards. Here are some of my favourites, drawn by teenage me.
STARLIGHT. Top card in the deck.
ALCHEMIST. Part of the game was that everyone could choose a card that represented themselves. This was my card.
PHARAOH. This card was the most powerful/valuable. He gained a microphone in this edition because we’d just finished a school production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
POET. He’s writing something about himself and weeping.
OREAD. An oread is the spirit of a hill, just as a dryad is the spirit of a tree.
DRYAD. This was my brother Andrew’s card– he wore glasses at the time. This edition has his eyes drawn heavily blue, because Andrew has noticably blue eyes.
NAIAD. The spirit of a stream.The full set is here: https://thurman.org.uk/starlight/ . Apologises for the card called MADMAN: I know better now.
